I belong to him.

Valentine’s Day is around the corner again. I really don’t have anything special planned for the day, the weekend after or the weekend before. It doesn’t help that Chap Goh Meh – the Chinese equivalent of V-Day – is just around the corner as well.

I could opt for throwing oranges into the nearby monsoon drain (that looks like a river) with a loved one but it’s a strange option. There is always the cursory wining and dining but when you have two birthdays to celebrate in the family and more relatives to visit, it’s just not possible to have a nice quiet V-Day evening all to yourself.

So I settled for the typical but true saying – “Every day ought to be a Valentine’s Day.”

BUT I do have something special in mind already for Nil when he drops by this weekend but that’s just about as V-Day as it will ever get for me. Unless you count ‘other things’ as part of V-Day celebrations. Things like rededications of affection and etc.

This year is a bit more special than the year before simply because of one thing: a gift of the heart.

I have been wary and almost cautious of loving after my previous relationship and subsequent encounters with potential boyfriends. And so when I started dating Nil, my emotions were held back to a certain degree and while I love him, I did not love him whole-heartedly. I held back until I was sure, doubly sure, perhaps even ‘triply’ sure of the surety of the relationship, of the sincerity of his heart, and of my judgment.

This time around, I’m glad to say that finally after 1.5 years, I belong to him.

I Belong To You by Anastacia & Eros Ramazzotti

Adesso no, non voglio più difendermi
Supererò dentro di me gli ostacoli
I miei momenti più difficili
Per te

There is no reason, there is no rhyme
It’s crystal clear
I hear your voice
And all the darkness disappears
Everytime I look into your eyes
You make me love you
Questo inverno finirà

And I do truly love you
Fuori e dentro me
How you make me love you
Con le sue diffcoltà
And I do truly love you

I belong to you, you belong to me

Want you
Baby I want you
And I thought that you should know
That I believe
And your the wind that’s underneath my wings
I belong to you, you belong to me

Ho camminato su pensieri ripidi
You’re my fantasy
Per solitudini e deserti aridi
You’re my gentle breeze
Al ritmo della tua passione ora io vivrò
And I’ll never let you go
L’amore attraverserò
You’re the piece that makes me whole
Le onde dei suoi attimi
I can feel you in my soul
Profondi come oceani

Vincerò per te le paure che io sento
Quanto brucciano dentro le parole che non ho più detto, sai…

Want you
Baby I want u
And I thought that you should know
That I believe

Lampi nel silenzio siamo noi yeah
I belong to you, you belong to me

You’re the wind that’s underneath my wings
I belong to you, you belong to me
Yeah hey yeah he

Adesso io ti sento
I will belong forever, to you
